Renewable energy, done right
CWP Renewables is a renewable energy company that develops, operates and owns renewable energy assets in Australia. With proven experience and expertise across the project lifecycle, we work with local communities and our customers to lead the transition to Australia’s low-cost, low-emissions energy future.
CWP Renewables is majority owned by Partners Group, the leading Swiss-based global private markets investment manager, along with original founders Alex Hewitt and Mark Crandall. This ownership provides the strong balance capability required to grow our pipeline of development projects and to ensure best in class asset management services.
Renewable Energy Portfolio
Our geographically dispersed portfolio of wind and solar projects is unique in the marketplace, combining generation profiles from different technologies and includes storage. This portfolio of aggregated, complementary and manageable generation can be forecast and sold into the National Energy Market (NEM) or direct to end users, setting us apart from single technology renewable energy project developers in the sector.
Our commitment to delivering combined and complementary renewable energy generation from our portfolio can be seen in the New England region of NSW, where our 270 MW Sapphire Wind Farm has been operating since 2018, and co-located c.200 MW solar farm / 75 MW battery facility development. The Sapphire Solar Farm and Battery facility is an approved development collocated with the operational Sapphire Wind Farm. Stage One will include the construction of a 34 MW / 34 MWh battery facility, which is expected to commence construction in late 2021.
Once all stages have been built out, the proposed project will connect wind and solar generation with battery storage to provide predictable, dispatchable renewable energy output directly into the national electricity market.
CWP Renewables has been developing the project based on the strong relationships established with landowners, community and Council throughout the Sapphire Wind Farm development.
CWP Renewables was established in Australia in 2007 and has since developed an industry-leading pipeline with a number of assets maturing into construction and operation. Our development pipeline continues to grow with over 4 GW of wind, solar and battery projects currently under development in eastern Australia.
CWP Renewables also provides dedicated asset management services with 582 MW of projects under construction and/or operations. This includes projects we have developed ourselves and projects developed and owned by third parties.
